Checking Your Tire Pressure

Your tires are an integral component of your vehicle. They ensure a comfortable
ride, maintain road safety by gripping the road surface, and increase fuel efficiency.
To make sure they’re properly inflated, regularly using a tires pressure gauge:
unscrew their valve cap and press squarely against their valve stem with it, until
there is no hissing sound due to air escaping out through any gaps between valve
stem and tire stem, until no hissing sounds come from air leakage.
If the TPMS warning light on your Honda Accord illuminates, this could indicate an
issue with one or more tires’ air pressure levels. Low tire pressure can lead to
uneven and excessive wear on tires, poor handling, reduced traction, and decreased
fuel economy; keeping them at their ideal inflation level for optimal performance is
vital for optimal vehicle performance; your owner’s manual or placard on the driver
door jamb will provide this information.

Checking Your Tire Tread Depth

When purchasing tires for your Honda Accord, it is crucial that the tread depth be
checked regularly. Any tire with tread depth of 2/32″ or less should be promptly
replaced in order to improve both safety and handling performance of your vehicle.
An easy way to test tire tread depth is with a penny placed in the shallowest groove
of your tire’s tread – if its head is covered by the tread then your tire tread depth is
adequate and is in good condition.
For optimal tire pressure in your Honda Accord, refer to either its owner’s manual or
sticker on the driver’s door jamb. Alternatively, purchase a tire pressure gauge and
remove valve stem caps to read pressure levels on each tire; if any are underinflated
add air using an inflator.

Changing Your Tire Pressure

Maintaining proper tire pressure reduces the risk of blowouts and improves handling.
If your tires seem low-pressured, consult either your owner’s manual or the placard
on the driver door jamb for guidance.
Utilizing a tire pressure gauge is easy and affordable; simply remove each tire’s
valve stem cap, insert the nozzle of your tire pressure gauge into its valve stem hole
and press down for readings.
If your tire pressure is low, use an inflator to add air. Once your tires reach their
proper pressure levels, the TPMS warning light should turn off. If it remains
illuminated after that point, reset it by following instructions in your owner’s manual
or using a calibration tool at a gas station; taking 30 minutes driving the car with this
system on will reset its sensors and turn off its warning light.

Resetting Your Tire Pressure Light

If the tire pressure light on your Honda Accord remains illuminated after adding air,
recalibration may be necessary. This could be caused by factors like changing
ambient temperatures affecting how much air is taken up by each tire. To reset your
TPMS system, turn the ignition on for at least 30 minutes at 30-65 mph driving and
drive for at least another 30 minutes before turning it off and off again.
This process will reset your Tire Pressure Monitoring System sensor and turn off its
tire pressure warning light, though you should continue to inspect your tires with a
tire pressure gauge regularly, especially after altering air pressure, rotating, or
replacing tires. For any questions on resetting the TPMS light don’t hesitate to reach
out Honda North near Burlington; our friendly service professionals would be more
